Ecology Futures Student Ambassador - Maria Magas

0,

Enrolled in Ecology Futures in 2020

I’m Maria and I’m in my second year of Ecology Futures. I’m from Poland, but I have moved to the Netherlands in 2016 for my bachelors - Product Design at Minerva Art Academy in Groningen. I chose for Ecology Futures, since being in product design, I’ve realised how wasteful and ignorant we can be to objects and settings around us, not realising the environment we are in. I wanted to explore more theoretical approach to sustainability and try to combine it with practice.

By living in the Netherlands, I’ve discovered new perspective on matters that seemed set in stone few years ago.  I believe that a big asset of MIVC at St Joost is the international environment that allows for an organic exchange of ideas, visions, traditions and often delicious food.This is what I really appreciate in the study context. Especially when dealing  with global topics like ecological degradation or socio - political injustice, more than one voice needs to heard. 

As a student ambassador I wish assist anyone who is at the crossroads with their study choices. It may consider the program in itself, or some moving out tips or living in the Netherlands altogether. These are important decisions to be made and it is everyone’s right to know as much as possible about their education I’m here to listen to your questions, concerns and doubts. We can have a quick Teams chat or talk via emails about any issues from the atmosphere in the academy to tips on application. So feel free to contact me!
